Aylesham railway station is on the Dover branch of the Chatham Main Line in England, and serves the village of Aylesham, Kent. It is 68 miles 66 chains (110.8 km) down-line from London Victoria and is situated between Adisham and Snowdown.
The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern.
It was built by the Southern Railway and opened on 1 July 1928 to cater for the considerable increase in passenger traffic brought about by the development of the Kent coalfield. The main station buildings are on the London-bound side of the station.
The station booking office is manned on Mondays to Saturdays mornings and a "Permit to Travel" self-service ticket machine is located on the London-bound platform.
